Kaylene Maalste – Monoprint – At the Water’s Edge
Every day I see rushes at the water’s edge so I chose this as my subject for the monoprinting challenge.
Materials: Hand-dyed fabric and black fabric paint.
Technique: I brayered paint onto an old glass shelf then placed the fabric down followed by the drawing I had made on paper, I traced the design with a spent biro and end of a paint brush, I then lifted the paper and continued with some free-hand marks. The design was then quilted. Through out the challenge I did a lot a backgrounds and have stitched into two of these and posted these on my blog.
